I assumed that “Reinvention” was referring to how Pearl stopped acting servile (and for a lack of a better term “pearl-like”) but I think it could also refer to how she changed between the war and the present (aka she now knows how to be “strong in the real way” and is a lot less ruthless/violent than in her war days).
Edit: My interpretation of “strong in the real way” is being strong in an emotional sense (i.e. being strong enough to forgive others and not hold grudges)
